    The problem that some people don't seem to get is that each person individually has their own beliefs... if you don't agree with their beliefs then that's ok don't go out of your way to make life for the person miserable even if the vote for red... who cares?!?! It is all about the quality of their character and not about what they believe in politically

    I agree, American politics sucks. Playing video games is like my escape from reality, my fortress of solitude, but now politics have gotten into video games this past year that I’m reminded of these politics. Video games are about storytelling and fun not politics and agenda but that’s the world we live in

    dude when scott retired i was so sad i cried cause i heard the political stuff thinking he retired from it but then i read his note and felt better knowing it was for his family and the amazing series would go on. it brought me comfort

    This video made me even more sure of the danger the USA is in. The political division is heading toward a nation that won’t exist. The political parties are giving each other so much hate and it has to stop. I’m a conservative, but I don’t hate LGBT community members. Just because someone supports a party that isn’t yours doesn’t make them worse of a person. My sister for example is very far left, I love her to death. There is no excuse to hate someone based on their opinions. I don’t want to debate anything from this post, I just want people to realize the USA is in danger.

  • MC69

    Okay, Republicans don’t hate gays. That is the biggest lie that I think I’ve ever heard and the media pushes that. Point is stop hating people based on their political views.

    As a conservative person, I still love watching matpat and other more liberal influencers despite our obvious differences in political views. Im so confused why the second someone is conservative it makes everyone turn on them. The same goes for actors. Why does it have to be such a big deal?

    Political ideology aside, you shouldn’t send death threats or dox anyone because they simply don’t agree with you, and even then Scott did donate to pro-lgbt. I agree if you don’t support how his money is used you can remove yourself from funding the games but death threats and doxxing have no place in the world, especially under the circumstances such as a different opinion on a topic.

  • Ash Boots

    Although I don’t agree on something’s MatPat said I admire that he expressed his own opinion and not what the internet wants to hear

  • Edwardson

    Why is cancel culture a thing. Why are we allowing what your political views is, that makes you or breaks you in today’s society. Scott is the very reason why this game and the community itself has gotten to be where it is. So why does it matter on what his political views are, to want you to hate him so much. Without him the game would have never existed. Like how you are able to express yourself in your everyday life. If the roles were reversed it would be the same thing. Stop being toxic people and just grow up.

    • Lil-NiCCo06

      humanity will never evolve from taking offense from others beliefs. people won't grow up because they want others to believe in the same as them. ik I shouldn't be saying this but humanity is the reason why I want to 💀 🔫

    I miss Scott already...but let's just hope that he always comes back.

    Not EVERY company changes for 30 days Sega and Niantic for example, they both are still rainbow, its almost august, they show their support by saying “hey we don’t just care on the month it matters to anyone not apart of your group” its details like that that make me smile, it doesn’t feel like a corporate selling point. I know its off topic but it feels like it could and maybe should be stated, and that maybe keeping it for a couple months and not just 1 can really show that you care. Is that too much to say in 1 comment for a fnaf video that only talks about this briefly? Yes! Is it ok for me to? That’s up to you.

    Scott had a priority when voting, military's strength and the only one that supported LGBTQ at the time he donated to first. I think he didn't do anything wrong and tried to support LGBTQ but military seemed to be his number one priority but I could see why people would be mad at him.

    You shouldn't change your perception of a game or a person just based off their political views not aligning with yours.

  • Caleb

    For anyone that’s confused about the severity of the backlash against Scott, it wasn’t just threats to him. His pregnant wife and his kids were being threatened with death and constant harassment. Not to mention untold amounts of doxing. Thank you Matpat for covering the topic is an objective matter.

    I hate that he's making Scott seem more worse than he is cuz I don't care that he's funding right parties I am right myself but I'm not against rights to people of color lgbtq. But he makes it so if you're playing FNAF now you're helping homophobia which he could just be funding his political party and not the bad parts. Even the Liberals have their own bad side of government. It's just that he makes it apparent to look at the more bad parts of what Scott is funding.

    He has a right to give the money to give to who he wants. The first amendment of the united states people. Just because you don't like someone of something then just move on. Scott doesn't deserve hate for supporting who he believes is best. Why exactly do his choices bother you people


    Bruh y’all are weird asf, just let the man support who he wants

  • Antony Ayala

    Ok, ive watched the vídeo, never thought i would see mat pat get into this, It was really hard to whatch since i didnt agree at all with what he said. What I will say about the situation is the following: scott did not do nothing wrong, he can believe whatever he wants to believe and support whoever he wants, that's none of our business we don't and shouldnt have any business other than what he creates and what we pay for him to create, you can disagree with him sure but he's not a bad person for supporting someone he believes is right.

    We can just let Scott cawthon go and allow him to move on. You should continue supporting the franchise if it makes you happy. We can also make the fandom self supporting fandom and continue to enjoy the franchise. Like the harry Potter fandom did. Do what you will with what I've said and i know you may agree or disagree with me and i will expect and respect your opinion. - Silver 😊

  • Red_Dragon_Scale

    Ah yes, Scott has committed the most heinous crime imaginable... donating some of his own personal money, with which he can do whatever he wants, to the Republican Party. What a criminal.

    I don't give a flying frick about peoples political views. Its like saying since you support lgbt and you support Scott then you don't support lgbt. Its so wrong how people think just because you think one person is better than the other to guide our country in your own opinion can re-shape your entire carrier or life. Apparently in the 21st century people cant have opinions anymore, and that's what really concerns me.

    yeah. ok. i see. If I don't support the agenda of mutilating children, I'm a bigot. I watched this channel for GAME THEORIES not politics. More importantly how can you support a community that throws a tantrum and gives you death threats when you say something they don't like or just generally disagree with them? I believe that lgbt people are people, and should be treated as such, but we can't even agree on what that means anymore. On top of all this, if scott will be stepping down, someone else will take over, probably someone who's politically correct. Now your twisted fantasies of gay animatronics aren't too far away.

    I think Scott handled this pretty well (expect stepping down to avoid criticism), I mean he admitted to his allegations and took full responsibility. A lot of other UZmilkrs, developers, etc. wouldn't do that.

      I honestly think Scott stepped down because he knew that the entire fnaf franchise was going to get dragged down with him if he stayed. The franchise would still get dragged to some degree, but obviously less if Scott disassociates himself with it.

    He only retired because a bunch of people who don’t agree with his choices bullied him into it. So your community that is all about tolerance, love, and support sure don’t have any of it. Maybe if they had something more in their life then just their sexual identity and hate for anyone that doesn’t believe like them. Then they might be more loving. God bless y’all you are more then just some sexual identity.

    • Michael Vallery II

      Also just because he retired doesn’t mean he’s not selling the franchise so he will still be getting money from it so yeah.

    I am not LGBTQ+ but I know some people who are. They love FNAF and still do but when they saw Scots letter they didn’t really know what was happening and neither did I but when I looked into this I was hart broken because I truly support LGBTQ+ rights and after watching this video I see that what happens was not in Scots control I can’t hate on a man who has created one the the best franchises ever but I’m not going to judge anyone it’s your opinion think what you think I right.

    The fact that people in the comments are *still* undermining the nuance of this topic after watching this video boggles my mind. People are still talking like the issue is black and white, and like Scotr is anti-LGBT when he has proven himself to be extremely supportive of the LGBTQ community. He supported candidates because economy and foreign affairs are important to him.

    11:40 If you enjoy the content of a certain creator but disagree with some of their opinions, it’s still okay to continue using or buying their products. There’s a joke that goes around my house and it goes like, “Hey, you like Michael Jackson? Well then, you support someone who… disturbs children.” We obviously don’t support those types of behaviors, but it uses the same logic. People shouldn’t begin disliking FNaF because they suddenly find that Scott Cawthon supports the political party that they don’t support and that a certain figure from the political party was spoken to be against Pride rights on a Democratic news source. It was really just his decision and his choice and opinion. If you like his products, then great! Your original opinion of his products shouldn’t change just because he has a different opinion than you. Thanks for reading.

  • Changer

    Scott's cancellation is honestly a severe blow to the functionality of democracy as a whole. I'm not a fan of conservatives; speaking as a person who makes adult content I know for a fact that the very same conservatives who are anti-censorship today would not hesitate for one singular attosecond to ban my content if they ever had uncontested control over content that gets posted online. But conservatives still have a right to exist as a party, and people who support them are not mustache twirling lunatics who vote republican for the sole reason that they just want to hurt LGBT people. Often times, they just have different ideas on how the world works. Often, the argument is painted like "We should do good in the world" vs "No, I don't want to do good." when it's really "I have a solution to this problem we have" vs "I don't think your solution will work" With basically half the country being treated like monsters who lack empathy and exist soley to be evil, it's destroying political discourse and is driving people to become ever more extreme. People with bad ideas on the left go unquestioned and unchallenged because even just being mistaken for a conservative is a death sentence, so nobody wants to be the one to stand up and criticize bad ideas from the left. The two party system is already bad enough, but a two party system where one party is characterized as demons and the other party is protected from even the most mild of criticism? You could not devise more volatile conditions if you did it on purpose. If we don't stop this trend, the country will fall apart.
